Shawn Boburg, the reporter for The Record (Bergen County, NJ) whose coverage of the role of political payback in the creation of four days of traffic jams at the George Washington Bridge last September has left Governor Christie’s presidential aspirations in doubt, is a winner of the annual George Polk journalism award, it was announced Sunday night.
